Default [Dixonary] Round 3024 - OAKUS - VOTE NOW!

Here are 14 definitions for the word OAKUS -- but only one is correct. Please send your votes by responding to the Dixonary group for what you believe are two definitions most likely to have come from a dictionary. The deadline for voting is Friday, November 1, at 9 a.m. http://www.timezoneconverter.com/cgi-bin/tzc.tzc

Any misspellings, weird spacing, etc., are my fault and not an indication of the accuracy of a particular definition.

Good luck!
